Are Spinning LEDs Dead?
As we ‘twittered‘ yesterday afternoon; yes, a lot of the good gossip goes up on Twitter first, Ed – LiteLogic have removed all references to their Revolution 360 ‘spinning LED’ product from their web site.
We don’t quite understand this and haven’t got a good answer from them or their CEO as to why just yet.

Possibly because Siemens, and Dynascan together own the worldwide patents on spinning LED screens. Siemens have the EU patent and Dynascan have the USA and ROW patent, and they have a heads of agreement not to sue each other. But maybe that doesnt extend to other companies 🙂
Just a thought.

In November 2007 Dynascan claimed patent infringement against Litelogic in California for its Revolution 360 product.
In May 2008, Litelogic countered and demanded a jury trial claiming no infringement.
Maybe they lost.

Looks like they’ve gone Tango Uniform – their website has been off-air for days now.

Well, they’re back online, but looks like they’ve lost their Irish and US offices.
No product details either, neither hardware or software.
(and their world domination map needs a serious update)
Worrisome that a company so dependent upon the Internet should be off the air for so long.
